The latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine published an interview with Assassination Classroom anime director Seiji Kishi. In the piece, Kishi mentioned that the current season of the show will cover the manga through its final chapter.

The first season of Assassination Classroom kicked off on January 9, 2015, and ran for 22 episodes. The current season began airing on January 7. Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero) will helmed both seasons at studio Lerche. Kazuaki Morita (Fate/Prototype, Arpeggio of Blue Steel) is the character designer on the project, while Makoto Uezu (Arpeggio of Blue Steel, Is This a Zombie?) provides the show’s scripts. The second season started airing Japanese TV on January 10, with the core cast and crew returning to work on the project.

FUNimation currently holds the rights to Assassination Classroom, and offers it on the company’s streaming platform. Funimation is also streaming episodes as they air in Japan, with the broadcast dub running as part of the company’s Dubbletalk block.

Funimation describes the series as follows:

Class 3E is about to begin their second semester! And while some things have changed, the class assignment is still the same: kill their teacher before the end of the year! Easier said than done since Koro Sensei’s made it clear he won’t go down without a fight. Will these students be able to take down the tentacled monster that moves at Mach 20 before he can destroy the world?

Yusei Matsui’s Assassination Classroom manga kicked off in Weekly Shonen Jump in July 2012. As of press time, the title is slated to end in five chapters, the last of which will be released in the 16th issue of the year.
